[EN]: After an almost 10-year relationship with Microsoft, Twisted Pixel Games becomes an independent developer again, an announcement on its web site says.

According to Twisted Pixel, it will “spin-out from Microsoft Studios” after Microsoft acquired it back in 2011 with a “minimally integrated arrangement,” an option that let Twisted Pixels execute its decision.

For Josh Bear, Twisted Pixel co-founder and creative director, “Microsoft has been an incredible partner since day one and we’ve always kept a background dialog open with them about the idea of returning to an independent studio model if the timing made sense for us.”

Bill Muehl, executive producer for Twisted Pixel, said: “We’re looking forward to the new relationships and platforms this will open up to us and continuing our strong partnership with Microsoft on future titles for their platforms.”

Both companies have been working on this transition for a few months already. Twisted Pixel Games says it will continue developing original games.

The company is known for developing such games as Splosion Man, Comic Jumper, Lococycle, and The Maw for Microsoft consoles.
